There are a lot of current stars who did embarrassing things early in their careers, so it's neat to see the early work of current stars in good films that you don't remember them in because you had no idea who they were the first time you saw the movie. Every once in a while, I'll flip through the channels, stumble across a movie I haven't seen for a few years, and I'll notice some huge fucking star in a bit part in a 1998 movie that I loved and I'll be like, "What the ...?" I had no idea he was in this movie.

Here are 12 instances of just that.

Ryan Gosling -- Remember the Titans


Michelle Williams -- Species


Jake Gyllenhaal -- City Slickers


Jonah Hill -- I Heart Huckabees


Bradley Cooper -- Wet Hot American Summer


Seth Rogan -- Donnie Darko


Chris Pine -- Smokin' Aces


Tom Hardy -- Black Hawk Down


Taylor Kitsch -- Snakes on a Plane


Jon Stewart -- Mixed Nuts


Vince Vaughn -- Rudy


Zooey Deschanel -- Mumford


Here's two from the TV files:

Jessica Chastain -- "Veronica Mars" (Hat Tip: JoRo)


Max Greenfield (Schmidt in "The New Girl") as Young Sandy Cohen in "The O.C."
